Paisley Wines Boombox Shiraz 2020
This cracking Barossa Shiraz has 10% Grenache blended into it which lifts the aromas, assists the seamless structure and works well to soften the burliness often found in this vintage. The wine has come together extremely well. Parcels are fermented separately. We have pre-fermentation maceration, a small percentage of new French oak, wild fermentation and maturation in hogsheads for 18 months. The majority of Shiraz fruit is from Eden Valley with 15% from the Valley floor. The Grenache comes from 80 year old vines planted in vineyards in the Barossa Valley foothills. Bright purple in colour, this is big, bold and plush. Not overly complex but oozing fruit. Chocolate and black fruits, mocha and plums. Good focus with a line of acidity running the length plus a soft texture. The lingering finish has surprising intensity. Drink now and for five years.
